  • Nudity on the platform.
  • Scammers and fraudulent activities by other users.
  • Challenges with Instagram login.

2. How to Call Instagram Support?

You might struggle to find an Instagram support phone number on the app or website. However, there is a phone number provided on various websites including PissedConsumer. Thus, when you search for the Instagram customer service phone number, you will be offered only this number: (650) 543-4800.

According to Instagram review #2850480, the phone number does not go through to a customer service representative. When you call Instagram support number, it diverts to an automated voice system where you are directed to follow certain online instructions to resolve the issue. You can find similar instructions in the Instagram help center.

3. How to Contact Instagram Customer Service via Email?

According to answers on Quora, the Instagram customer service email is It was initially open for customers to reach out to support, but it is no longer open. When you send a message to this Instagram customer service email, you receive an automated response referring you back to the help center to resolve the issue.

This is evidenced by the numerous complaints that indicate that users do not get a response to the Instagram customer support emails they send out.

However, Instagram customer support does communicate with users via a no-reply email. Therefore, if you contact Instagram customer service help in-app e.g. by reporting an issue, they might respond by sending you an email. This option might be more helpful than calling the Instagram support phone number.

For instance, Instagram review #2879776 indicates that the customer received an email from after updating their email address.

Instagram Help Center How to report things

For these issues, reporting through the app is more effective than sending messages to Instagram customer service email or calling a phone number. The easiest way to report abusive or spam content is by tapping on the report option on the content itself.


There is no real person on the other end when you call the support phone number or attempt to find an Instagram customer service live chat. Neither an Instagram customer service email address nor a way to chat with a support representative. This makes it quite difficult for users to contact Instagram customer support for help. Users have to rely on the help center to find answers. You can also login into your Instagram account to report an issue.

Hello, good work. On November 2, my Sibelcehersey instagram business page was stolen. The people who said they would help me about this issue also took money from me and defrauded me. Believe me, I was very upset. 1.5 years of labor disappeared in an instant. I look forward to hearing from you regarding this matter.

My Instagram was hacked. My email, password and my phone number were all changed on my account to where I am no longer able to access my account. I had a lot of personal info on that account that is now being held at ransom for 500 on my own account. They are now messaging everyone I know and completely ruining my friendships and more. I have reported it numerous times and nothing has been done. I want my information and my account back. This is pissing me off and while y’all do nothing, all of my information is being spread all over Instagram. Fix it now please.

Someone’s got into my email account and got on to my Instagram, changed my email & phone number on my Instagram so I literally cannot access it, I’m just wondering is there any way I can contact Instagram and confirm my ID to prove that I’ve been hacked, I’ve screen shots of video calls and messages from the hacker using my Instagram. Please I really need it back, there’s photos of my kids etc on it, he’s blocked me and all of my friends so I can’t contact him, he black mailed me with money too.
